Adios for a couple of days

I’m heading out the door to go to the Amelia Island Concours, so posting will be light to non-existent for the next couple of days.  Try not to tear the place up too much while I’m gone.

Open bar at Texas!

Today’s load of bull comes, appropriately enough, from DeLoss Dodds, as Texas considers selling beer and liquor at football games:

The thing I will say is that it’s not a money thing. If we did do it, people would say that they they’re just doing it for the money. It’s not a money issue. It’s a do-the-right-thing issue.

Yeah, sure.  That’s why you’ll be giving drinks away.

By the way, what’s the over/under on the year booze comes to Sanford Stadium (outside of the luxury boxes, that is)?  You’ve got the money angle and the give the people more of what they get at home angle.  Plus, it’ll generate more, um… opportunities for Jimmy Williamson’s boys.  That’s a win-win-win in my book.

Today’s scary thought

SEC, don’t say you weren’t warned:

“Gurley looks like he’s got great endurance and more quickness than he had by the end of last season,” Richt said.

A quicker Todd Gurley?  Maybe they can outscore everybody.

Help me make it through the break.

Great lede from David Paschall today:

The toughest time of year for Georgia’s football team used to occur around Halloween, when the Bulldogs annually came out on the short end of their matchup with Florida in Jacksonville.

Two straight wins over the Gators have eased that somewhat, but if only the Bulldogs could do something about spring break.

It’s nice to have talks from former players, but wouldn’t it be more effective to stand in front of the team with a small cup and say, “boys, when you get back, it’ll be drug testing time”?

Musical palate cleanser, goin’ home edition

Sad to hear that Ten Years After guitarist/front man Alvin Lee passed away (“after unforeseen complications following a routine surgical procedure”, yech).  He didn’t have the acclaim of a Clapton, Page or Beck, but the man could play some guitar.

Here he is in all his glory at the Marquee, playing “Love Like A Man”.
